branches of the u.s. military. we're in constant contact with them. i've just now come from the pentagon as you are aware our minister of defense ehud barak received the highest civil honor given by the secretary of defense to any civilian, the distinguished civil service medal. and i think that stands as a symbol of the deep and multifaceted relations between our two militaries. >> we're out of time. you're a historian. he just said ehud barack, that u.s.-israeli military relations have never been better. you agree? >> i agree. >> thanks for coming in. >> thank you, wolf. >>> in the wake of the scandal surrounding general david petraeus's affair and the investigations into several other high profile generals, does the u.s. military need an ethics boot camp? and more than a decade after a deadly crash, a u.s. airline gets its day in court. many of my patients clean their dentures with toothpaste. i tell them dentures are very different to real teeth. they're about 10 times softer and may have surface pores where bacteria can grow and multiply. polident is specifically designed to clean d
'll look to the pentagon for what makes the most sense for the national security needs are the country. but what we proposed top of those $1 trillion savings of last year is $600 billion in detailed reforms to our health care programs and other government programs that over 10 years yield very substantial savings. again, david, republicans have said that they don't like those reforms. they'd like to do more. and if that's true, they should tell us what they'd like as an alternative or compliment to those. we can't react to anything 2348 until we see the details of the proposal. and we need it on the rates and revenues as well as the spending side. we have given them our view of what makes sense for the country. we think we'll have enormous support. >> is it fair to go to republicans, many of whom were re-elected just like the president was re-elected in their own districts and say, look, we're going to get specific when it comes to the tax increases we want, but we'll be vague when it comes to stuff that's hard for our side, which is medicare. >> that's a misperception. we propossessed

a four year plan like the pentagon, well, i don't know that's the best model to work on. gerri: all right. well, i have to ask you about bp today. >> sure. gerri: big news from bp, federal government saying you are disqualified from winning new contracts. here's bp's statement, the suspension is due to bp's lack of business integ try as demonstrated by the conduct with regard to the deepwater horizon blowout explosion, oil spill, and response. now, the stuff did not get hit today. what's your estimate of what it means? >> a temporary move. the obama administration, again, wanting to show -- hold up bp that we're puppishing them. it's a big company, one of the biggest producers in the u.s.. gerri: matter if it loses contracts in the u.s.? >> they are a lot already. they don't go away, this is just on new contracts. it's a temporary deal. gerri: come back to the set again. >> always happy to be here. gerri: coming up, live to the l.a. auto show and hottest trends in all things cars, and president obama heeds the call to listen to small business owners. no kidding. will the latest meeting ch
popular. if they want more entitlement cuts, more discretionary spending cuts, if they want pentagon cuts, the president wants them to specify them. and this offer is intended in part to say here's my math. here's the level of deficit reduction i can reach. if you think you can reach the same or more with more spending cuts, you go first and name them. >> yeah. >> so richard, we have everybody playing chicken for the most part. it's kabuki. you show your spending cuts and then i'll show mine. >> right. it failed before when the president was negotiating against himself. look, i'm going to come back. $400 billion of medicare cuts is exactly what you would want democrats to do if you want them to start dealing with entitlements. what are we talking about when we say democrats need to deal with entitlements? principally, it's medicare. so that's a huge down payment right there. you can say, well, i don't really believe they're possible, but that's a real proposal. what you're asking for in terms of the politics is that the president somehow solves john boehner's problems with his own caucus.

is walking and loading its chemical weapons, ready to use them on its own people. nbc's chief pentagon correspondent joins us now. jim, is this the red line president obama was warning about? >> well, not quite yet. u.s. officials tell us that the syrian military is poised to use chemical weapons against their own people, and all it would take really is the final order from syrian president assad. but we have learned that as of today, all the precursored chemicals for that deadly nerve gas have in fact now been loaded on to aerial bombs, but those bombs are still in the depots. they haven't been loaded on to airplanes yet, and president assad hasn't given the order. but they're pretty close, larry, and that's why earlier this week, of course, president obama issued a very strong statement aimed at president assad saying look, if you use these weapons against your people, there will be serious consequences, but that's where somewhat of the problem lies. >> listen, i want to ask you, one of the parts of the red line statement by president obama and secretary of state clinton, that if the
to force the pentagon to end a ban on women serving in combat jobs. joining me is major mary jennings hagar,a pilot with the california air national guard one of the women in this lawsuit. m.j., welcome. glad to have you here. >> thank you so much, alex. thanks for having mere. >> i'm glad you're here. why do you want the combat ban for women lifted? >> well, really all we're talking about is lifting the policy. the combat exclusion policy does not reflect the reality of what's going on today. the combat exclusion policy does not keep women out of combat. that's a common misconception. women are in combat every day serving valiantly side by side with their brothers in arms. and the combat exclusion policy only accomplishes to tie the hands of the commanders in the field trying to make the decisions of whom to send on what missions. it increases discrimination and sews the seeds of doubt in the minds and women on the battle field on their abilities. it also hampers promotion and doesn't accomplish what you'd think is its primary goal of keeping women out of combat. >> i was reading your back
a little bit about that. barbara starr is cnn's pentagon correspondent. w. bell, a comedian who's the host of totally biased, and u.s. congresswoman ann hayworth is with us as well. barbara, what are the worrying signs? >> what our sources are telling us, soledad, last couple of days there have been new intelligence that the syrians are now moving their chemical weapons around in a very different way. not just consolidating for security purposes, but potentially moving them in a way that indicates they might be getting ready to use them. what do we mean by that? likelihood is what they're doing is using some of the chemical material closer or to the artillery shell dis --- >> separately -- to the actual weapons it's an indication you might be bringing them together. >> why else would you be doing that? and it is a massive concern right now. >> that has to be a major concern obviously in congress watching all of this that red line hillary clinton was talking about. >> well, absolutely. and we have obviously our major ally in the middle east, israel, is very vulnerable to this in syria. they
for every ship in the navy. we could transform responsibilities out of the pentagon and consolidate programs and save a significant amount of money. >> you can talk with tom coburn about the fiscal cliff and the future of the republican party on "in depth." the senator has written several books and reports. join us for senator tom coburn, live sunday at noon eastern on c-span2. "washington journal" continues. host: we are looking at various aspects at the so-called fiscal cliff. joining us for the discussion is steven sloan. he is with politico. could you define what a tax credit is and how that differs from a tax deduction? guest: credits and deductions are used to lower somebody's tax bill. if you have it $1,000 tax bill, -- basically a reduces taxable income, so it takes the taxable income off the top. if you have a $1,000 tax deduction, that is basically a to under $50 deduction -- $250 deduction. host: on their tax credits that specifically affect families? guest: some that have expired that are part of the fiscal cliff package. they get much less attention than the bush tax cuts. they
on television five times when everyone in the white house, the pentagon knew that was just a bill of goods. >> gregg: i read that he said his moral fitness argument distilled down to its essence is this: she knew the video story line was questionable, and yet she was parroting these talking points. if you're a strong moral character, you say, wait a minute. i know there is something wrong with this. >> gregg, here is the issue: why wasn't hillary clinton out there? why weren't the few other people above susan rice there? was this kind of an opportunity for her to show her allegiance to the president so that when hillary left she could be secretary of state? by the way, she had access to all those presidential briefings. >> gregg: the classified information, she had access to? >> absolutely. she dug her heels in and said no, it's a spontaneous video. i want to know who told you that? not just who took out al-qaeda and terrorist that you knew about, but going back to mukasey, he says, wait a minute. she's saying and the president is saying she did an outstanding job at the u.n. really? do y
're getting breaks news on syria. straight to our pentagon correspondent, barbara starr, for new details here as we're talking about, you know, potential chemical weaponry. now not only talking about it, not only existing in syria, but the fact you're hearing from a u.s. official it is being nixed. tell me what you know. >> now we know what is going on. over the weekend, the u.s. got intelligence that syrian forces were beginning to start mixing chemical agents. essentially putting two chemicals together that would allow them to make deadly sarin gas. this is extremely serious news regarding the war in syria because until now there has not been that mixing together, the next step would be to put that deadly sarin into artillery shells. the u.s. believes, brooke, that the assad regime is looking at the possibility of some kind of limited chemical artillery strike on its own people, on rebel forces. officials tell us they hasten to add they don't believe assad -- bashar al assad has made the final decision to go ahead with a strike, but that that's what these preparations could be aimed towards
, quote, worrying signs of activity in syria, just in the past couple of days. pentagon correspondent barbara star, we're so happy to thank, is with us in studio this morning. barbara, great to see you. so the white house apparently hasn't revealed any new evidence that the syrian government is planning to deploy these weapons. >> what are we talking about here? they're not revealing it publicly but in fact there has been intelligence over the last couple of days that the syrians are moving their chemical weapons inventory around. and it's quite different. in the past we've seen them moving it around to store it essentially, make it more secure, as fighting's gotten closer. this time all of our sources are telling us, it is telling us, it is different. that what they are seeing is movement that could potentially signal the use of chemical weapons. this typically would be matching up the chemical with preparing it with a warhead. with artillery. with rockets. all the signs that they could be getting ready for an attack. very worrying. a lot of international pressure in the last several
